The best birthday parties were filled with tons of games — pin the tail on the donkey, duck, duck, goose, and of course, the piñata. Very few parents were cool enough to allow a bunch of screaming children to swing a bat in the air while blindfolded, so I’ve only had a few experiences with them. Considering I’m basically too weak to put together IKEA furniture, even now, I highly doubt I was ever the one to break the colorful paper vessel to let the candy come trickling out.
But now that I’m an adult I may finally get another (much more dangerous) chance. The company Nipyata is now selling piñatas — with alcohol! Appropriately named the “stay classy burrito,” among other styles, you can buy a piñata filled with tiny, little nips (re: the mini alcohol bottles for airplanes, not porn star nipples). I can’t think of anything that sounds like a better idea for a 21st birthday party than putting a bat in people’s hand and having them swing. Fun!.
